Format: PresentationsTop 10 Reasons to Document Your IDEA Data Processes
This session highlighted several benefits of documenting your state’s IDEA data processes. Developing a “playbook” (that describes the who, what, when, where, and how of your state’s process for collecting, validating, submitting, and reporting 616 and 618 data collections) memorializes those processes for your state and therefore helps build resiliency in your agency.
Format: PresentationsIntroduction to the New and Improved IDC Part B IDEA Data Processes Toolkit
This workshop provided a brief overview of the new IDC IDEA Part B 616 Data Processes Toolkit. Several states that have piloted the toolkit shared their experiences with creating data processes for the SPP/APR indicators, building capacity of data stewards, and instilling a culture of high-quality data. Presenters facilitated discussion that helped participants understand the value of data processes documentation and afforded them an opportunity to experience preparing for and beginning this work.
Format: PresentationsThe Data Processes Are Documented…Now What?
Completing data documentation using IDC’s Part B IDEA Data Processes Toolkit provides many benefits to state agencies. After developing one or more of the protocols, state staff have seen firsthand the benefits of improved understanding of the data and communication about the data processes. This session provided a rationale for ongoing use of the data process protocols and how their use can help build capacity to create a culture of high-quality data at both the SEA and LEA levels.
Format: PresentationsTaking Data Processes Documentation to the Next Level
This workshop provided participants an opportunity to envision and begin development of a comprehensive plan for creating protocols and follow-up activities they may use at both the SEA and LEA levels. Session activities focused on identifying appropriate roles to be represented at the table. They also focused on methods for engaging staff in the work and other critical considerations for implementing and sustaining these foundational data practices.
